DETROIT (AP) -- Alberto Gonzalez's squeeze bunt turned into an RBI infield single in the 11th inning, and the Texas Rangers went on to beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2 on Sunday.
With the bases loaded and nobody out, Gonzalez bunted back to pitcher Thad Weber (0-1), who had no play at the plate on runner Nelson Cruz. Weber froze with the ball, and first baseman Miguel Cabrera struggled to get back to the bag in time. Everybody was safe, and Texas took the lead.
Detroit manager Jim Leyland came out to argue, apparently contending the ball hit Gonzalez and should have been dead. The play stood.
Robbie Ross (3-0) pitched a scoreless 10th for Texas, and Joe Nathan finished for his fourth save.
Josh Hamilton homered for the Rangers.
